HOW DO I CHECK MY STUDENT OUT EARLY FROM SCHOOL???
The most efficient way for a parent to check a student out early is to contact the student’s Clerk by email or phone an hour or more before the release time.
A parent may also send a note with the student stating the date and time the student should leave.
The student will receive a yellow PTL (Permit to Leave) slip to release them from class to come to the Front Office.
The parent comes into the Front Office to meet the student and sign them out.

Student Parking and Drop Off Concerns
Parents, we are still having issues with people dropping off and picking up their students in front of the administration building. This is not…I repeat…is not an authorized drop off/pick up area. The front of the administration building needs to be kept cleared for emergency vehicles. Please cooperate with us by utilizing the student parking pickup area or the south student car circle next to the auditorium.
Student’s over- flow parking area is the north lane of the teacher’s parking lot. Any students parking in an unauthorized parking area will result is a disciplinary referral and possible revoking of driver’s privileges. Parents please help us by reminding your student of this expectation.
Universal Breakfast Program
Please be reminded that Osceola Fundamental High School follows the ”universal breakfast program” that all students are allowed 1 free breakfast daily regardless of their lunch status.
Osceola Fundamental High School is acting solely as a referral source for TBARTA regional government agency as a convenience to its families and neither this school nor the School Board assumes any responsibility or liability arising out of your voluntary use of this program, or makes any representations as to the qualifications, safety, or insured status of any driver that you may be matched with under this program.”
Parents we are having some serious safety concerns in the parent drop off car circle in the mornings. Numerous complaints have been brought to administration’s attention that some students are being dropped off on the left side of the car circle with is used as a passing lane. This is extremely dangerous maneuver! Please only let you student out on the far right next to the sidewalk.
Parents we have received concerns about vehicles using the Lake Seminole Village neighborhood as a morning shortcut and U-turn. Please be mindful of traffic laws and possible safety and property damage by making such a maneuver.
